Subject Re: [SCXML]Eclipse plunge-in based visual editor,debugger and code generation tool for SCXML
Date Thu, 01 Apr 2010 18:04:21 GMT
Just out of curiosity, wouldn't it be easier to simply create a SCXML
serializer plug-in for the EMF, since EMF already supports state diagrams
(in addition to all the other diagram types)?  It might save you some time
and effort.

Hope this helps,

Mark
